    I don't buy this "synthetic cashmere" thing - I googled it and the first thing that came up was this thread... and we all know how credible SF is :D

    That being said, stuff can go for cheap because there's good cashmere and crappy cashmere like anything else.

    I Googled it as well, and the next hit that comes up is acrylic fibre on Wikipedia. Which has probably much more credibility than SF. :D


    There's also synthetic wool, synthetic silk, synthetic cotton, etc. Better known as polyester. :satisfied:

    lol - I know there are synthetic fabrics that feel like cashmere, polyester has come a long way since the '70s. I don't believe you can just label polyester or any other synthetic as "cashmere" without running afoul of labeling laws.
